Bali Loses a Loyal Supporter

Peter Rieger, Bali E-Commerce Pioneer, Dead at 65.

(5/10/2010) The death has been confirmed of the CEO of Bali.com and Bali Villas Peter Rieger. The German-born Rieger had been resident in Asia since 1971 working in a number of travel-related jobs, including publishing travel guides and working with a leading European travel company. In the 1990s he established his highly successful real estate, villa management and travel portal run in conjunction with a popular local travel forum dedicated to Bali.

Responding to Bali's economic crisis precipitated by terrorist bombings in 2002, Rieger established a charitable fund that raised money to help keep Balinese children in school.

Rieger, together with his Taiwanese-born wife, Isabella Lin, were high profile figures in Bali, particularly at culinary and wine events. Peter Kurt Karl Rieger was a member of the Chaine De Rotisseurs in Bali.

Local press reports state that the 65-year-old Rieger was admitted to Bali's Sanglah General Hospital on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, where he was tentatively diagnosed as suffering from Dengue fever. He died on Thursday afternoon at 5:25 pm..

Rieger's wife, Isabella Lin, is returning from the U.S.A. to Bali to handle final arrangements.

The staff and management of balidiscovery.com are saddened by the death of a friend and respected competitor and extend their prayers and condolences to Isabella and everyone at Bali.com and Bali Villas in this time of bereavement.
